7. Clint Eastwood
Clint Eastwood was one handsome soldier! He was drafted during the Korean War and trained at Ft. Ord in California. On base, he was a swimming instructor for two years of service. He was also a bouncer at the Army NCO Club.
He had one scary incident during his service when he caught a ride with a Navy plane to visit his family at home. The plane had engine trouble, and they had to make an emergency water landing. They had to swim a mile to land, and after the experience, he found out the crash site was a breeding area for sharks.
8. Gal Gadot
On-screen, Gal Gadot plays the magnificent superhero, Wonder Woman, and in real life, she also was a fighter. She served two years in the Israeli Defence Forces as a combat trainer. That must be where she learned all her stunts for the movie.
In 2004, Gal won the title of Miss Israel and then enrolled in the army at 20-years old. Clearly, there are few things she can't do. How is she so perfect?
9. Jimi Hendrix
Rockstar Jimi Hendrix and discipline are usually not used in the same sentence, but surprisingly even he served some time. He actually got to the army by being a bad boy.
He was arrested for driving a stolen car, and he had the option to go to jail or serve in the army. He chose to enlist and was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division in Kentucky. He received an honorable discharge for being unsuitable.
10. Bea Arthur
Let's go girls! Male celebrities weren't the only ones serving in the military. Bea Arthur joined the Marine Corps during WWII.
During her service, she was a truck driver and typist. She worked her way up the ranks to become a staff sergeant, and in 1945 she was honorably discharged.
11. Bill Cosby
Although Bill Cosby is no longer well-liked like he used to be, he did serve in the Navy during the Korean War. When he was 19-years-old, he enlisted and served in bases in Virginia, Maryland, and Newfoundland, Canada.
He served for four years as a hospital corpsman and physical therapist for injured Korean War soldiers. In 2011, he honored by the Navy and received the title of honorary chief petty officer.
12. Arnold Schwarzenegger
The Terminator/former California Governor/Mr. Universe 1967 is also a military veteran. He enlisted in 1965, and at the time it was required that all men serve in the Austrian Army.
He was only required to serve for one year, and during that year, he was put in military prison for sneaking off base to participate in Junior Mr. Europe. He wanted to complete so badly that he didn't think about the consequences, but luckily he won the competition.
